Hardwood floors are versatile, from formal settings to the most casual of rooms. One of the most desirable qualities of hardwood flooring is that the surface may be refinished over time to honor the timeless quality of natural wood grain.

Knoxville HardwoodHardwood Floor Types and Descriptions
Hardwood floors are available in a wonderful variety of wood species. Available woods include American maple, cherry, pine,  ash, oak and birch, as well as exotic specialty hardwoods such as Merbau, Mahogany, Brazilian Cherry, Rosewood, and Bamboo.

Hardwood floors can be installed as large one-piece boards or in the form of “engineered wood.” Engineered wood is when the top layer of the floor is a hardwood veneer that has been laminated to lower layers of other woods to improve dimensional stability. Engineered displays less expansion and contraction with moisture changes and therefore can be successfully installed below grade, in basements, in humid climates and can even be fit to vertical surfaces. Generally, hardwood flooring is pre-finished at the factory to ensure the highest quality possible under ideal conditions.

WE Cork Flooring logo

With the discovery of cork stoppers in a newly acquired warehouse in 1868, the Wicander family embarked on what was to become a family legacy in the cork industry. This journey would span two continents and continues on today through their great great grandchild, Ann Wicander. Although today WE Cork products are made available by dealers in every region of the United States, the company is based in historic Exeter, NH.

For more than one hundred years one thing has stayed the same at WE Cork, we have a passion for cork. It is the splendor, beauty, resilience, and ability to regenerate that makes cork so remarkable. These attributes have inspired five generations to truly believe that the use of cork in our products is not just good business sense but a way of life. I often jokingly say that cork must run in our veins, a common bond that we all share, uniquely lasting. Perhaps this is the secret behind what has made our passion, our family, and our business so strong for such a very long time.

It is cork’s extraordinary ability to continuously regenerate itself that has allowed our work to be earth friendly, a notion that forms the foundation of our business. This is something we are very proud of, especially in today’s industrialized marketplace. With each year that passes I find myself so pleased that the vision of my family four generations ago is still prevalent and resonating in all that we do here at WE Cork.


Triangulo Hardwood Flooring logo

The TRIÂNGULO group  has been dedicated to the industrialization of hardwood since 1972. Built at that time, a solid industrial structure, administrative and asset that secured the technological evolution and constant innovation in its product line, adapting to the demands of the domestic and foreign markets.

The knowledge of the peculiarities of the wood, the most important building material and coating throughout the history of humanity and respect for the forest reserves, natural and planted, defined the guidelines of the business activity of TRIÂNGULO: “Man and Nature in Harmony”.

The increasing demand has required technologies that provide the rational use of wood, the continuous development of products, forest protection and planting of suitable species for many different purposes. Involved in this process, TRIÂNGULO meets the market present without compromising the future demand.

With this objective, their designs are meant for the responsible production of wood and manufacture of floors whose technology reduces consumption and avoids waste. The company invests in preserving their native reserves, practicing the system of “responsible care” in which the harvest of the species used is selective: only the trees that are removed are moving from adulthood to old age, when the activity of absorption carbon dioxide from the air is reduced by 70%. The reforestation programs, such as management responsibility, involving communities adjacent constituting an economic scenario with social and environmental responsibilities, within the principles of TRIÂNGULO. For the transformation of raw material thus obtained, the TRIÂNGULO assembled one of the most modern plants in the world, designed to produce their collections of hardwood flooring.

Hardwood Floor Care & Cleaning

We all marvel and are thrilled to discover a vintage hardwood floor that is in excellent condition. That doesn’t happen by accident. Here are some basic guidelines to keep your new hardwood floor looking fabulous:

  • Keep your floor clean. Dirt contains small stones with razor sharp edges and nothing is worse for any floor than dirt.
  • Place bristle type mats at all exterior door entries. Use them when entering the home to remove grit and dirt from your shoes.
  • Place area rugs near all entrances to the home.
  • Remember to always place soft casters or felt pads under furniture legs.
  • Water is a hardwood floor’s biggest enemy! Protect your hardwood floor from moisture. Around dishwashers, aquariums, and sink areas, always place an area rug on the floor to protect it.
  • Never haul or drag anything heavy or sharp across your hardwood floor.

For care and maintenance of hardwood floorings, we recommend Dura-Luster cleaner, available from Greater Tennessee Flooring.
